Black Smoke

By nenjohn, August 29, 2014

I have a 1996 Toyota Corolla 1.6 L engine. It has black smoke coming from tailpipe after started and smells like gas. I need help trying to resolve the issue. It is really a great car.

Make sure all four sparkplugs are firing. If not , check the coils. Black smoke is unburned fuel. You might also check the compression.

Make sure there are no obstructions in the intake before the filter. You might have sucked up a rag or plastic bag .

Any error codes or a CEL?
